WOYWW a re-return :)

Hello again :) Wow 2 posts in a week, there might be hope for me after all :)  Be sure to hop on over to WOYWW Headquarters :) to have a sneak at everyone's desks. But be warned, it is time consuming, and you can't just look at 1, you just have to keep having a sneak :)
Not much going on my desk this am. But the day is still young. I have been working on my inspire sign for over a week and have not got much done with it. The book is "The Peace Book" by Louise Diamond. Haven't started reading it yet but I am hoping for some insight into some inner issues I have.
Not much of a post for today. I am awaiting a visit from the grand baby :)
Have a blessed day :)

attempting a return to blogging :)

We all know that life gets in the way but wow, I didn't realize how long it had been since I blogged. Hoping to blog more this coming year. January has been fun so far haha We celebrated my grand daughters 1st Birthday :) That is her and I in the picture above. That lil girl brings so much joy into this heart of mine.

While going through totes from the basement I hit a goldmine of vintage goodies, including this lovely necklace above. Along with treasures from my childhood that I am so grateful to have now, even though there was no rhyme or reason for me keeping them way back when.

One thing that has not been fun this month is the amount of snow we have gotten. The above picture was taken on 1-12-11 and man it has just continued on a weekly basis. Tomorrow we are due for single digit temps with -30 to lower wind chills. Not my favorite time of the year at all.

Something I miss so much, sunshine :) Looking forward to warmer temps, for sure.

This is what my room looked like a few weeks ago. Total mess and I felt like I hadn't fully moved in, even though we have been here since summer. So, it was time to get busy and get totes and boxes gone through. Took me a while but I got it done and I love having the extra space. Not saying that there are a few boxes that need to finish being organized but it looks so much better in there.

So happy to  have found this lace shawl that belonged to my mom. The wall behind my headboard needing a little something and this fit the bill. I love it.

 Metal craft shelf reorganized :) The top shelf holds extra page protectors, albums in progress (smaller ones) and extra albums. The middle shelf is negatives and idea and inventory binders. And the bottom shelf is all albums. The wine rack in front is now being used to hold fabric and patterns (even though I have yet to learn how to follow one lol)!!
More re-organization on this shelf. Current projects, idea books, already made cards and other lovely stuff. The chest in front hold unused journals, composition notebooks and sketchbooks.
This is what it looks like in front of the house today. Still piles of snow everywhere and we are expecting another storm this week. Hoping the groundhog does the right thing this year and cuts our winter short :)
Hope to be posting more pics of projects soon. And without such a LONG delay in between.
